What’s better than an outdoor musical performance on a warm summer night? How about the 12th annual Targhee Fest?

Tucked into the base of the Tetons, surrounded by wildflower meadows and positioned at the heart of some of the finest hiking, camping and mountain biking in the region, Grand Targhee Resort is the ideal setting for a music festival.

From July 15-17, Targhee hosted 16 amazing bands and musicians on the outdoor stage at the base of the famous ski area. Prominent and well-known groups including Drive-By Truckers, Grace Potter and MOE hit the stage and entertained the crowd under azure-blue skies.

But it wasn’t just the big named bands that stole the 2016 show. Some of the lesser-known artists had fans standing in awe. Highlights of the weekend included 13 hours of music on Saturday concluding with the Jamie McLean Band rocking the afterparty at the Trap Bar, as well as a stunning Sunday morning performance by the band Honey Honey.

The three-day Targhee festival has become a well-known stop for fans and bands alike. The venue is world-class, it’s family friendly and camping is only steps from the stage.

Rounding out the summer from Aug. 12-14, Targhee hosts its 29th annual Bluegrass Festival, another must-see for music aficionados.
